third time's the charm

Rosey bounced up to me, beaming. 'Look.' she breathed, 'Look.'

Tight in her hand, the fingers uncurling, up on her tip-toes, watching her own palm....

barely breathing, hair swinging forward on her shoulder....

And there - there! in her hand was her tooth.


Third time's the charm, Rosey. Thanks for letting me keep one.

Beautiful photo. Congratulations on finally getting to keep a tooth!

Yay! When both of my girls lost their first tooth, they LOST their first tooth. Good thing the Tooth Fairy accepts notes of explanation.

The doll Rosey's holding looks very much like a doll I have that was my mum's when she was a little girl.

Well, now, that's a extra special visit from the Tooth Fairy!

Woohoo! I hope the tooth fairy is ready for that tooth!

Oh sweet. My son lost his first tooth too (when his mouth made violent contact with the pavement and we spend 10 hours at the ER). We went back the next day but it was no where to be found.
